Cloth Diapers Pocket Diapers Review Sized Diapers Velcro/Aplix Closure WAHM made

Designs by Cace Pocket Diaper Tester Review

I reviewed a Designs by Cace all-in-one diaper last year, during my “year of fluff” event.  One thing I had mentioned was that a “heavy wetter” style diaper would be a nice option.  Sara at Designs by Cace decided to test a brand new pocket diaper pattern, to make absorbency customizable for heavier wetters.

Keep in mind that this is a tester diaper, and changes and improvements will be made based on tester feedback!

The diaper looks very much like the AIO, with aplix closures and laundry tabs.

Except of course, it has a pocket opening rather than a sewn in soaker.

The medium is estimated to fit 10-22 pounds.  My son is about 21 pounds and he’s definitely getting close to outgrowing the diaper, but he still has some room.

It took me a while to get my feedback to Sara.  I generally get a diaper, wash it once, then use and wash it at least 3-4 times before providing feedback.  Well…  The first three times I put the diaper on my son, he pooped in it almost immediately!  I joke about him and pretty new white diapers, since he always seems to do that.  Never three times though!  Maybe the super soft inner relaxed him, I don’t know, ha ha! 

In any case, I was finally able to give it some really good use, and it has been washed 7+ times.  Sara included a microfiber towel to use in the pocket; she is planning on making inserts for the diapers, but wanted to focus on the diapers for now.  The last time I used the diaper, the towel was pretty soaked, and I had a little bit of wicking at one of the legs.  I think this could be corrected by using an insert in the pocket, and I’m going to try stuffing it with one of my spare inserts next!  I’m looking forward to seeing photos of round two testers or the final product!


DBC sells her AIOs from $9 (smalls) to $15 (large prints) and I’d expect the pockets to be fairly similarly priced.  Designs by Cace diapers are a great value and are work-at-home-mom made!

A Year of Fluff All In One Diapers Cloth Diapers Giveaway Made in the USA Review Sized Diapers Velcro/Aplix Closure WAHM made

Designs by Cace AIO Diaper Review & Giveaway (CLOSED 10/30)


Designs By Cace AIO Diaper

Designs by Cace is another WAHM brand, making sized fitteds, all-in-ones (AIOs) and covers, as well as nursing covers and slings.

I received a size medium AIO, which is estimated to fit 10-22 pounds.  Small fits about 5-10 pounds, and large about 20-35 pounds.

The diaper has a soft minky inner, a 3 layer sewn in soaker (very trim, but probably best just for daytime) and velcro closures with laundry tabs.  I really like the black velcro closures, it’s a nice contrast and it’s different than other diapers.  I did notice a few areas where the stitching could have been a little tighter/neater, but it didn’t affect the function of the diaper at all.

The diaper is a smidge smaller than some other mediums I have; here it is compared to a one-size diaper on the medium setting:

Here it is measured folded and stretched:

It fit my 18.5 pound guy just fine with plenty of room to grow.

We didn’t have any leak or fit issues, and though it looks like it was digging into his belly, it’s just the way he was sitting.

A solid color medium AIO like I received, is just $10!  Wow!  Medium prints are $10-12.   A large AIO is $12, with prints ranging from $12-$15.  Smalls are a little less at $9 each.  Fleece covers are just $5-8!  These are very Daddy friendly and affordable enough to buy several and support a WAHM.

Giveaway: Designs by Cace is offering a winner any one in-stock item!

Here’s how to enter: All entries go in the form below.  Mandatory entries include name, email address, and your favorite Designs by Cace item.  Please feel free to leave a comment, but comments will not count as entries.  Post will be updated daily with the # of entries received.
